Favorite thing: California is very disable accessible. You find this is most of restrooms, doors, entries and the sidewalks. And if you find some place that is not, reporting it is always welcome. We want to make our state accessibe for everyone to enjoy. The park is very accessible to disable individuals, which is awesome. Nicely paved walkways that are wide enough to accommodate anyone in a wheelchair or motorized carts. There are two, maybe three parking spots at the top by the lighthouse. Much of the parking areas have lots of spots available. I always look for this because my mom is elderly now and needs to have the access to these to make her life less of a burden. So I can sympathize for those people who have been render disable. Lets make their life better.

Living in Point Loma
Favorite thing: Point Loma's residential section historically was developed to house military personnel and their families, some of the homes can be very modest, but in the past years the value of property has risen and many houses have been redesigned into elegant living spaces as can be seen in the fourth photo.
Living in Point Loma can be very expensive. The price of buying a home depends on the size of the lot, the size and condition of the house and it's location. A one bedroom house without a spectacular view will cost about $300,000.00 and the price goes up to about $10,000,000.00. The second picture on this tip was taken from an empty lot on the northeast side of Point Loma and the price of that lot was listed for almost $400,00.00.
Renting in Point Loma can be more affordable. An apartment can be as low as $825.00 per month and houses for rent average about $2,500.00 up to $6,000.00 per month. A modest house on Hill Street, the second photo of this tip, is renting for $2,500.00 a month.

Fondest memory: One of my fondest memories is the day my sons and I had an adventure to the Cabillo National Mounument and while exploring the area we found a hiking trail that led down the south side, the Bayside Trail.
The views along the way were fantastic, it was an isolated trail and the boy's imagination flourished when we came upon an old armory hidden in the side of the peninsula. We stopped there to eat our sack lunch and they climbed all around.
The trail has since been marked and paved. Other trails have been added around the Lighthouse with interesting points along the way.
